Oct 21, Colombo: Sri Lanka university lecturers, who carried out a three-month long strike demanding a pay raise and 6 percent GDP allocation for education sector, will review the implementation of their demands by the government.
The Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) will hold a meeting of its executive committee on Thursday (25) to discuss the progress made by the government in implementing its demands.
Head of FUTA Dr. Nirmal Ranjith Dewasiri has said the university teachers are disappointed that the government has failed to implement some of their demands agreed by the government.
He has explained that the government had agreed to immediately withdraw circulars that disrupt the autonomy of the universities. However, it has not yet been done.
According to Dr. Dewasiri, the establishment of a committee to create a separate category for university academics has also not taken place.
